Rollin from St. Petersburg wrote hoping for more information on the end of the year fiscal situation and the prospect of legislation on this issue. Mezzo from Orlando asked Senator Rubio to be a voice of reason in the Senate and demand the looming fiscal cliff be addressed. In responding to these letters, Rubio said, “I will continue to call for action, right now, on tax reform. I will work with anyone who wants to do that, Democrat, Republican, whoever.
